    [QUOTE=tranteruk;7819149]Call that graphic? I call it good shooting..

    Why are the cartridges marked 'heavy'? I though a 158gr would be heavy.[/QUOTE

    Not sure but it may mean heavily loaded, they shouldn't be fired in alloy framed revolvers. They make a 180 flat nose lead round too. All these rounds cost about $30 for a box of 20 that's a little heavy if your shooting a lot.

    That Buffalo Bore ammo is expensive but it is really bringing home the bacon so to speak. I usually reload for my .357s. I may reload some 125 grain bullets for practice and use some of this Buffalo Bore stuff for deer hunting. A big deer on my farm is 150 pounds. A long shot is 100 yards. My 1894 CSBL with the Buffalo Bore ammo would be just the ticket for that sort of thing. The 125 grain loads may kill better than the 158s. I will see this fall. It is really nice having two rifles and a bunch of revolvers that use the same easy to reload ammo.

    I know nothing about Buffalo Bore ammo. Do they use their own bullets?

    Congrats on taking out the pigs! Had some start showing up on my camera last week. Hoping to use my new (in December) Henry BBS steel carbine in .44 magnum once they show consistently for a couple of weeks.

    According to the website all the load info is proprietary. They make some hot stuff.

    Mighty fine shooting on the range and in the field. Good job!

    Thanks for posting this. Dang, no hogs here, and I don't have enough "points" for spring bear, so it'll be August before I can go for "big game" this year.

    You did great, and thanks for sharing.

    Regards, Guy

    My point would be whatever they are loading it could be easily duplicated. Pull one and see what powder they use and charge weight
    ID bullet and cut out $30 per 20 deal. I know guys who don't load get carried away with Specialty Ammo but a loader should be able to roll up anything he needs. Not bad mouthing these makers or their products but they ain't magic.

    Ahh man. I wish I was closer. Looks like a lot of fun. Good shooting. There are really big coastal hogs out here and terrain where I’d probably recommend more gun but at those ranges it seems to be working fine. I think the 357, 44 through a rifle are pretty solid.
